Golf Course Homes: 2 Simple Tips to Tee Up the Perfect View

Just like the game of golf itself, when it comes to buying a home on the course, there's some serious strategy that goes into it. Sometimes, it's easy to get caught up in the glamour of golf course living and forget to step back and “read the green" beforehand. As you prepare to purchase your golf course home, know your needs and follow these two simple tips for a guaranteed hole-in-one.

Don't compromise on the size of your yard

Sure, it's great that the end of your yard is the beginning of a stunning golf course, but where is that line? Don't become so smitten by the idea of living on the course that you compromise the amount of yard space you actually have. Keep in mind that this is your brand new home and the last thing you'd want to do is rule out any additions to it that you may want in the future. Outdoor living space is often where the most unforgettable memories are made - from 4th of July family barbecues to Friday night drinks on the deck with friends to playing games of catch with your kids! Make sure that you'll have enough yard space that if you want to extend your deck or put in that pool you've always wanted, you'll be able to do so without a problem.

Privacy and placement

Where along the course will your home be? If you're near a tee box, you might find yourself unintentionally eavesdropping on the conversations of the chatty Cathy's of the course. Make sure to ask how often the house and yard find golf balls as unwanted visitors. It all depends on the needs of your family, but know that living on a golf course does not have to mean giving up your privacy! Want in on a big secret? Talking to someone who regularly golfs on the course can be a huge advantage - they can tell you what spots have the most traffic, where balls usually land, how popular the course is and more!
